Destination Essentials

With a Mediterranean climate and stunning landscapes, Zakynthos is a destination that shines throughout the year. However, spring and autumn are ideal seasons to visit for pleasant weather and lesser crowds. From March to May or September to December, you'll bask in moderate sunshine without the intensity of the summer heat.

Summers offer perfect beach weather and a vibrant atmosphere, but it could get crowded. Winter brings mild but rainy weather with fairly low temperatures, making it a less popular time. But whatever season you choose, Zakynthos, with its captivating charm and historic grandeur, never fails to deliver a memorable holiday experience.
